    Those 3 you chose give me a terrible headache. The one thing I do not like about LL is not the vanilla, but the anise note. Anise and nutmeg are the two notes I dislike the most. The funny thing, is that even though I hate anise everywhere else, I love it in Rive Gauche, one of my top 3 fragrances. Go figure.
    I'm not a big fan of anise myself, but I think Lolita Lempicka did a great job of combining the anise with the sweetness. It smells like cookies but is very wearable. The thing is that it's making me sick too lately (it never did before), so although I love it I don't wear it too often. D&G pour homme has become too common so I will probably never own it again (used to be my signature in 2004). And A*men, well I respect it but it's not for me. Rive Gauche is waiting to be tested at my skin.

    I've got a sample of FdM on the way. I can't wait to retest it, even though I found it vile and scrubbed it off the one time I tested it back when they still carried it at Macy's. I've got Fahrenheit 32 coming along with it so it'll be fun to have a showdown between these two orange blossom/vanilla concoctions.

    Another 5 star frag I forgot to include on my list:

    The Different Company - Un Parfum des Sens et Bois
    Simultaneously evokes a spiritual and sexual response in me. Who says sex can't be spiritual (and why shouldn't it be)?
    ***For sale:

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    and more!

    From the "tried" section of the wardrobe, only:
    Hammam Bouquet, Joop Homme (vintage), Kenzo Jungle, ADG regular (non-flankers), Hugo (1995) by Hugo Boss (again non-flanker), Gucci pour Homme II, Kouros, Davidoff Cool Water and Good Life would still get only one star.

    Among the 5 stars selection, the rating and the order of preference remains largely the same, including but not limited to:
    Armani Eau pour Homme, Creed BDP, ADP Colonia and Colonia Assoluta, Ungaro II and III (perhaps even the Parfum Aromatique flanker of the second one), Knize Ten, Gueralin Mouchoir de Monsieur, Chanel Antaeus, Aramis Tuscany, Blenheim Bouquet, almost any Lutens, especially Ambre Sultan, Chergui and Chypre Rouge, almost any Xerjoff, particularly 1861 Renaissance and most of the Shooting Stars collection, most of the fragrances by Hugh Parsons.

    I can see some raised eyebrows for your one stars, which, at least in their vintage versions, are mostly really good and/or classics (except the Hugo Boss, which I can't stand).
